Wynyard Group New Advanced Crime Analytics Operations Centre

Wynyard Group expands Australian and Asia Pacific presence with New Advanced Crime Analytics Operations Centre

Auckland, 21 July 2014 - Wynyard Group, a market leader in advanced crime analytics software and services, announces the opening of its Asia Pacific Operation Centre in Sydney.

The centre will support growth in the region where Wynyard recently secured new contracts with key Australian State and Federal Government agencies, Thai Customs, New Zealand Police and one of the region’s intelligence agencies. The company is also supporting inter-governmental drug control and crime prevention initiatives in the region.

Wynyard’s software is used globally to help prevent and solve serious and organised crime ranging from regulatory offences and financial crime, to drug trafficking, terrorism and cyber crime. The major users of Wynyard’s Advanced Crime Analytics software are financial institutions, regulatory bodies, government intelligence and investigative agencies which is a growing market for Wynyard said Craig Richardson, Wynyard Managing Director.

“There is strong demand in Australia and South East Asia for a big data analytics capability focused on surfacing key intelligence on organised crime and drug trafficking from diverse data sources such as financial transactions, mobile phone handsets, call charge records and the movement of people and suspicious packages.

“We will double the size of our Australian based team this year to support a customer base of more than 30 agencies in the region, collectively responsible for the safety and security of more than 650 million citizens,” said Richardson.

Wynyard’s Advanced Crime Analytics product platform allows users to collect data from a variety of sources, surface organisations or persons of interest and identify links to past incidents or potential future events. The platform supports small and large scale investigations and intelligence operations to prevent and solve crime and is used by more than 111,000 end users globally.

Richardson said Australia is an important and growing market for the company.

“More than 60 per cent of Wynyard’s 2013 customer revenue was from the Asia Pacific region and Australian financial institutions participated in our recent new capital placement.

“The interest in our products and Wynyard shares has given us the confidence to open a new centre in Sydney and expand our operations in Canberra and Melbourne,” said Richardson.

The opening of the Asia Pacific Regional Operation Centre also coincides with Wynyard’s Asia Pacific Advanced Crime Analytics User Group which brings together customers and crime prevention experts.
